Sheriff Baca Admits Mistakes, But What’s Next?

Hosted by

LA Sheriff Lee Baca and his top Deputy Paul Tanaka answered tough questions last week about the abuse of inmates by deputies in the county jails.  They testified before a commission appointed by the Board of Supervisors after it was revealed that a federal investigation was under way.  Baca said he was not told about widespread abuse, but admitted he was to blame.
